For the second time in less than a week, Sonoma County health officials issued a freeze warning in response to the National Weather Service's prediction for freezing overnight low temperatures expected now through Sunday morning.

Saturday morning is expected to be the coldest morning.

The county's network of care partners with local service providers are offering winter shelter bed space or other sleeping alternatives where shelters are not available. This is in addition to year-round shelters and assists in protecting community members from the harshest weather during the winter months.

County health officials say there will be 53 winter beds available on a first-come, first-serve basis, with many offering wraparound services as well.

Reach For Home at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Healdsburg will open nine additional beds when the temperature falls below 38 degrees or two or more days of rain occurs. The shelter is open to adults and families. Check-in begins at 7 p.m., with limited dinners available at 5:30 p.m.

Redwood Gospel Mission on 6th Street in Santa Rosa will have 40 beds available and begin intake daily at 1 p.m.

Social Advocates for Youths on Summerfield Road in Santa Rosa will operate four beds for youths between the age of 18 and 24. Guests can begin checking in at 7 p.m.
